Territories

Curating

From 4 until 27 May 2018, the renowned art space La Rade in Locarno hosted the first institutional solo exhibition by the Zurich based artist duo Baltensperger + Siepert, curated by Riccardo Lisi and Silvia Converso.

A collection of the most important works by Baltensperger + Siepert’s from their Territories cycle was presented in Locarno for the first time. In this work cycle, which the duo started in 2010, they examine fragments of the topic of territorial power relations.

 The center of this exhibition is “Dancing Queens and Power Structures“, the latest artwork of the duo. 100 identical soldiers made of white, shiny porcelain are placed on a plinth in a strict geometric order. The fragile material contrasts the militant gesture and formation while it provokes thoughts about group behavior and structural representation of power.  Aside from other artworks the internationally known artworks, “Desti-Nation“ and “Ways to Escape One’s Former Country“ were also be part of the exhibition.
